Chapter 705: The Support and Confusion of the Nobles
“King Joelson, my eternal god!”
“My god, our good days are coming. Our good times are coming!”
“Thank Heavens for bestowing such a powerful and wise monarch on us, the poor underground city. Thank Heavens for bringing such a god to our side!”
“Praise Lord Joelson!”
At this moment, the citizens of the underground city, the central plaza, were cheering and crazily surrounding their new king, Joelson!
At this moment, everyone was cheering to their heart’s content. They were singing and waving the things in their hands, wanting to create momentum for Joelson. They wanted to use all the methods at their disposal to give their new king, the new king of the underground city, their highest sacrifice and the highest respect!
Everyone was cheering to their heart’s content, offering their love and respect to this foreigner and to Joelson.
Such a grand occasion, such a grand occasion, caused the officials who were mixed in the crowd to be secretly shocked!
One had to know that in the entire underground city, ever since the first life form appeared at the bottom of the Wailing Abyss, up until now, there had never been such a grand occasion!
From the time the first life form was born until now, it could be said that thousands of years had passed. A long time had passed. After the words were invented, there had always been people specially assigned to depict the history of the entire underground city. This history had always been recorded and, up until today, there had never been a fault!
In other words, there had been intelligent creatures from the underground city. After having the words, the historical records of the underground city had never been broken.
In such a long time, in such a long history, no one could create such a sensation like Joelson!
Such a huge sensation was unprecedented in the history of the underground city!
The nobles and officials in the palace clicked their tongues at this moment. They looked at Joelson’s back and sighed in admiration.
Even the Iron-Blooded King Reynolds, who used to have the highest approval rating, did not have such a high approval rating!
Such a high approval rating was unprecedented in the history of the underground city.
That year, the Iron-Blooded King Reynolds led the peasants to revolt and beheaded the incompetent old king. At that time, the approval rating was not as high as it was now.
This caused these old nobles and the officials in the palace to sigh.
They did not know what the Iron-Blooded King Reynolds, whose body had been completely destroyed by the ancient dragon soul of Joelson, would think if he could see this scene at this moment!
They sighed in their hearts and looked at the people who were celebrating under the arena with a wave of curiosity.
What kind of magic did this foreigner, Joelson, have that allowed the entire underground city to have such a high approval rating.
The nobles and officials in the palace were racking their brains at this moment, but they still could not understand why Joelson could have such a high approval rating.
These nobles and officials understood that Joelson’s powerful military strength was only one of the conditions, and it was not the most important one.
“This is really strange. I don’t understand at all why Joelson is able to enjoy such high public support!”
A noble looked at the cheering crowd around him and was puzzled.
The answer to these questions was something that these nobles and officials who stayed in the palace would never understand.
In fact, the answer to the question was very simple.
The reason happened to be the previous king, the Iron-Blooded King Reynolds.
One had to know that in the entire underground city, if the Iron-Blooded King Reynolds was the strongest, then basically no one in the entire underground city would dare to challenge the Iron-Blooded King Reynolds.
Especially after the Iron-Blooded King Reynolds went into closed-door training, the Iron-Blooded King Reynolds had reached the level of a god!
A god. This was a level that was quite terrifying for the underground city!
It could be said that the Iron-Blooded King Reynolds’s strength had already reached the level that everyone thought he would be able to intimidate the entire underground city. In fact, it had already far surpassed this terrifying standard.
Although the Iron-Blooded King Reynolds’s strength was slightly inferior to Joelson’s, it was actually not that important.
Because the strength of the Iron-Blooded King Reynolds had long surpassed the level of being able to intimidate the entire underground city with force. If it wasn’t for Joelson, the one standing at the level of Joelson would have been the Iron-Blooded King Reynolds.
So why didn’t the Iron-Blooded King Reynolds receive such a degree of love from the people!
The reason was actually very simple.
Because of one thing.
In order to stabilize his position, the Iron-Blooded King Reynolds had enacted a cruel law. In order to intimidate the people, the punishment was very cruel and chilling.
In order to consolidate his position, the law enacted by the Iron-Blooded King Reynolds was all made for the dignity of his royal family.
All of this was because the Iron-Blooded King Reynolds was a king who had become a monk. His power and position had usurped the old king’s. These things did not belong to him. When the Iron-Blooded King Reynolds had first started out, he was just a humble farmer, the most ordinary young man in the village.
Faced with such a fact, the Iron-Blooded King Reynolds was extremely uneasy about the stability of his position. In order to intimidate the officials and the crowd, he had made a series of punishments.
The title of the Iron-Blooded King Reynolds was not only referring to Reynolds’s cold and merciless attitude towards the invasion of magical beasts. It was also a manifestation of his cruel rule and violent punishment.
People could say that he was wrong. In fact, it was not wrong to do so. Consolidating the throne and emphasizing one’s own legitimacy was something that every king should do.
Although the Iron-Blooded King Reynolds did not make any mistakes in doing so, it still had a great impact on the gathering of the people’s hearts.
All the problems appeared in this cruel military law.
What Joelson did was actually very simple and easy to understand.
It was very simple for Joelson to give up defending his authority. It was such a simple method that allowed him to gain the hearts of the entire underground city.
